26" Wheel Conversion

2008 Harley-Davidson© FLHR Road King

Front Wheel Conversion

This is a major facelift for an aging bike!

This customer wanted to create something unique with his "other" bike and brought it to us for a 26" front wheel conversion. Sounds simple, right?

Nope. Luckily, our friends at Misfit Customs have a frame kit to change the rake to accommodate the large diameter front wheel. We sent the frame off to their shop in Texas and what came back was incredible!

This bike is getting the full custom treatment, paint, wheels, Willie G. skull accessories and much more. The paint is coming from a local group called Crazy Beavers Customs (people's choice winner at the 2014 Ray Price Motorsports Expo) and we are all wringing our hands waiting for the paint to come back!

We have finally finished the 26" front wheel conversion! Our customer wanted skulls, and boy did he get 'em! Willie G Skull timer cover, derby cover, pegs, footboards, and grips, Alamo customs helped us by modifying the stock seat and recovering it in brown leather and tooling it up with some more skulls. Misfit Industries took care of the frame with one of their "short neck" kits, holding on to a pair of RC Components Flipside "Prowler" wheels, 26" up front and an 18" matching wheel out back.

The riding impression was great, as the bike handled just as well as a stcok FLHR! Crazy Beavers Customs handled all of the paint work, which turned out great. Our customer also wanted stretched saddlebags in place of the stock leather bags which we sourced from Harley-Davidson. Keep an eye out for this killer custom prowling the streets around North Carolina!
